Fandom Stocking

Sign-ups for Fandom Stocking are open through December, 14! I've decided to join again, although I'm aware that I'll probably end up with distributing story promises again which I won't be able to fulfill due to lack of time. Yet, it's fun to receive all the holiday greetings and fannish stuff. And maybe there are prompts which strike instant inspiration so that I might come up with a story after all.

The sign-up post is here.

I've also updated my Dear Author Letter by adding Lucifer, for which I've recently discovered a passion.

Doctor Strange

I saw my first 3D movie this week. So far, I've avoided 3D because I wasn't sure if it would work with my eyes and if my stomach would agree with it.

However, Doctor Strange didn't leave me a choice. The 2D version was available only in the German dubbed version, and I definitely wanted to see it in English because of Benedict Cumberbatch's wonderful voice. So I went last night, put my contact lenses in and got one of these glasses.

I loved the movie. The 3D technique is fascinating, but also distracting. It took some time getting used to. Some things just looked computer-generated which of course they were, but in 2D it's not that obvious. And sometimes I was close to getting sick.

Overall, I still prefer 2D. However, there are a couple of upcoming movies that I wish to see, so I might watch the 3D version again if no 2D is available.

Upcoming movies I want to see are:
Fantastic Beasts
Rogue One
xXx (Nigel Bennett has a part in this one. Might be thrilling to see him in 3D :))

Nigel Bennett in The Strain

Nigel has a brief appearance in The Strain (season 2, episode 2). He plays an antique dealer in a flashback to 1965 Vienna and speaks with a perfect German accent which made me smile and wonder if that is what my English sounds like. :)
